but like our last president, president clinton you can get a lot of blows and shoulder your vote in a couple of places like florida. now, that is the con so you ask yourself where is the democratic party? remember them? the democratic party. the biological problem as you know as many of you have taken american biology is democrats -- jellyfish don't have spines and don't count and political parties to save your vote. it's not even right now. remember the jim crow laws were written by democrats and used today by republicans and analyst. is bipartisan apartheid my friends. history moves in waves. when i was in new mexico, one of the worst dates in florida and ohio and new mexico led terms of the loss of. george bush won new mexico in 2004 by 5000. it's amazing. most of voters or minority citizens, hispanic, overwhelmingly democrat. how do you end up with a republican governor and republican senator and george bush? they threw 30,000 in the garbage including the for the soldier -- do they have the special soldier present, absentee ballots for soldiers. every single ballot by a soldi
to make contributions. it happens from time to time. it certainly happened during the clinton years. but i don't think it is a common problem and is not on a scale that you suggest. we're not talking about billions of dollars in any of those cases. it's really thousands or in the worst case, hundreds of thousands. the fact that it is notorious, but you know about them, is in some ways encouraging, because it means the transparency process that we have is working the way it should, that it's possible for people to find this out, and to monitor the process. it is in everybody's interest, in the opponent's interest, to make sure my opponent is following the rules just the way i am, so they look very closely. while there are some incentives and some ways in which bad actors can get involved in the process, i don't think it's a big problem. host: a final question, is this the end of public financing as we see all this money coming into the campaigns? guest: absolutely, and with the program exists today. we will not see president of public funding in the same way ever again. the real question is
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w

, new hampshire was very solidly republican for many years. recently, i think it is sort of the clinton 1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two guber
with and prick supported -- president clinton supported that. >> i'm proud to have the support of president clinton who said the progressive version is the best and it was the budget that most invested in putting america back into the future business because it protects social security, medicare and makes america competitive internationally. so i think president clinton is a ranl guy and thought it was a great budget number one. number two i've worked with republicans. we should try to work together. i've worked on the fight to end the war in afghanistan. but the reality is there are big differences between democrats and republicans in washington. mr. doherty is a republican he's committed to more tax breaks for mill nares to repealing obama care and starteding the process all over again whofment are committed to subsidies for big oil and ending the guarantee of medicare. when you put them in power you make the chances of their agenda more of a reality. it matters a lot who we send there. the president put forth the american jobs act. . the president of the united states. he never got a hea
should do it the way president clinton did it. ask for shared sacrifice. particularly for millionaires and billionaires. i will take one exception was the question. social security and medicare. >> moderator: even under the affordable care, medicare as we knew it, wouldn't survive much beyond the next decade or so. what specific things we do for medicare to make sure that redline doesn't keep going right through the group. rozum: patients need to have choices of doctors. medicare does stabilize cost. buerkle: >> moderator: mr. maffei. maffei: we have added nine years of solvency. but we need to get health care costs down. that would mean that it would be $6000 short of what they can afford now. >> moderator: ms. buerkle? buerkle: there have been a number of distortions that have been promoted. this is one of them. the affordable care act, as you pointed out, cuts medicare for current seniors at $700 billion. medicare has been changed for our seniors right now, unless we repeal the affordable care act. ryan budget is not a voucher program. it is a needs-based government supported premiu
significant votes are expected. the president had been scheduled to go to ohio today with bill clinton. that has been cancelled. joe biden was supposed to be there, but is not going to be able to go to new hampshire today. people are trying to move around their appearances, the president basically had a couple of appearances and is then coming back. the white house is basically monitoring conditions. host: we are talking about two different changes to the schedule. one is the practicality of not going to a certain swing state, but the other has to deal with how candidates are perceived. talk to us about that angle. host: mike holly had an interesting story today. no one wants to be seen as politicizing a storm, but on the other hand they have a job to do next week. no one has talked about suspending their campaign. after the john mccain experience four years ago, no one would actually use that phrase. there are unpredictable ways in which this could affect people. no one wants to be seen as trying to take political of vantage of this. but the effect could include things like not being

with the reds in colorado springs. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. >> bill clinton could be coming to your state. an official says bill clinton is scheduled to campaign for the president today. in colorado. the president was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: and we expect we will see, pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, both candidates later in the week. governor mitt romney was here last week in the rally at but rocks that drew 9000 people. thousands were turned away. the following day, president obama held a rally in denver and drew crowds of up to 16,000. the governor this because deserve an amphitheater that has the capacity of 18,000. the president and his campaign were looking to go to boulder to hold a rally. they are try to turn out a lot of voters for the optics. >> these are great stories about real people in american history. very important moment in american history we do not know about three the first programs came to -- 50 years before the mayflower. they were friends. they made a wide theory they had the
years ago. >> sean: that was is former president bill clinton at a campaign stop in florida earlier today. seems like president obama's most high profile supporter is finally coming to terms with the dwindling excitement surrounding the anonned one and he is certainly not alone. even the new york times cannot ignore governor romney's forward momentum and is isitting that pennsylvania s in play. so it pennsylvania support of the bishops jet a possibility? here to talk with us is fox news contributor charles krauthammer. you and i were talking off air. what a back handed complian cot of bill clinton. seems like the president goes and gives christie a hug and promises he will be acting all presidential and then flies off again to of all places las vegas. and since then one in three gas stations are closed. six hours people are waiting in line for gasoline. tempers are flaring. electricity is scarce. and people aren't getting the help they need. janet napolitano says well, we will get it to you as soon as possible. this is five days into this. and i'm thinking that whatever goodwill the
will join president clinton and a monday afternoon campaign appearance. mitt romney has scrubbed his appearances today, instead spending the next two days in ohio. just over one week ago in the campaign. we will be talking about early voting on "the washington journal." we want to begin with the what this question. what if it is not decided on election day? what if there is a recount or multiple recounts? let's begin with some news of the morning. the front page of "the new york times. marty it is now counted by county. -- it is now county by county. there is also this from "the washington post." va. even as being scrubbed for a number of candidates. the scheduled destruction did not stop the two candidates from delivering attacks on each other yesterday. the president of using his of parents to accuse mitt romney of raising taxes on middle class when he was governor of massachusetts. the question we are focusing on this morning is, what if there is an election dispute? we are basing it apart on a story that has this. election disputes likely. we already posted the question on the fa

clinton in charge fema strengthened, terrific job. you have to call it as it is. you don't call it -- you don't call it balanced when it's not balanced. everybody remembers what happened under hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the end of its shelf life, the accuracy of its forecasts for major storms like blizzards and hurricane
guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional point or two out of the few remaining undecided. host: the first call
backward on that. in the 1990s bill clinton raised exactly the high income tax rates that barack obama wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they actually added more than 1 million fewer private sector jobs if george bush's first term than president obama has under his first term so i really do not think that the basic economics or the history says that just going back to deregulation and high rate-- high income rate cuts is the thing that leads to growth. >> brown: and do you think professor -- >> two decades of strong growth, we saw two decade, 80ous and 90s with extraordinary growth. economists called it the great moderation long boom and that's because the stable policies are put in place. tax reform, if you like, of 1986. a bipartisan reform president reagan worked with democrats in congress, that is the kind of thing we nude to get the strong economy back. >> back to you pfessor goolsbee, just this question about -- >> i agree with that i think tax reform and a gra
. hillary clinton and president obama come out and try to set the record straight. right now and not spin everything. we don't -- we don't want the details. we just want answers and want accountability and want people to resign if they have to. >> brian: scott, two quick points to get to in a minute. real quick, when you hear the secretary of defense say i didn't want to put my guys into harm's way in uncertain situation, you are a navy seal. don't you always go into uncertain situations? >> if i got the call right now, right now to go to libya or anywhere else to help folks and they needed me, i would be there right now. every single military member, cia folks, state department guys, security, anybody would step up to the plate and run out there in harm's way to save fell will he americans. there is no doubt about it. >> brian: you think he was disingenuous when he said that because you and delta force and guys like you do this all the time? >> folks like us and that are out there right now. that's what we do. that's what we would do. i think it was a misleading statement at best. >> bri
of this mess, and it will take, as clinton said, another four years to get out of it. but i do see some positives. host: jim, do you really think that business owners are going to risk profits and losses based on trying to make the president look bad? caller: i don't think business owners are. i think that big corporations that have billionaire stockholders -- if my taxes were going to go from $140 million on a billion dollars a year to $360 million, yes, i do. host: all right. that's jim in orlando, florida, where they are watching out for hurricane sandy. they're looking at that all up and down the eastern seaboard. and in the "new york times" this morning, we've got a picture of vice president joe bide known oshkosh, wisconsin, on our friday -- on vice president joe biden in oshkosh, wisconsin, on friday. he was scheduled for an event in virginia, but it was cancelled. fears of storm disrupting final days of campaign is the headline. sandy is expected to be a strong tropical storm that could cause severe coastal flooding, intense wind damage, and knocking out power to millions of peo
employ. you know, james what president clinton said in the democratic convention. no president even myself could have solved the mess we were given . >> it is a fact-free argument. president obama said he would solve it and making promises. and that shart testimonies the store store and the effort to say it was bush's fault. we were growing faster in the early president obama term. in the year 2010 when obamacare and dodd-frank enacted it was very slow. you want to point out the difference. there was more growth in the beginning of president obama's presidency than now? >> we are going in the wrong direction. forward is not the term for the way the economy is headed now even if that is the obama campaign slogan. and you lock at history of recoveries. this one stands out. we ought to be further along in a rebound, faster growth more employment and it is it not happening. >> gretchen: you question the moving forward with the policies and what the policies might be to continue the recovery with regard to taxes. >> that's what is scary right now. you can see very weak growth and then we
, it was the clinton 1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he won the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush, but in 2004 went to john kerry. the president had a nine-point victory in 2008. we really are a tossup state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is their early voting? how do new hampshire and -- new hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there are absentee ballots. you have to sign a form that says you not be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, they are open from 7:00 until 7:00. some are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnout in the country. other statistical interesting statistics -- statistical facts are that we are one of the least taxed state in the nation. the least taxed state. we have no income tax, no sales tax. both the democrat and republican candidates will campaign on that issue, pledging that they will not have an income tax or sales tax. are gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue, as a matter of fa
, that's who headed fema. clinton was the first -- was the first president to allocate the fema head who actually had experience -- >> disaster. >> -- disaster management. it's not political. it's about poverty. it's about race. and when we think about disaster preparedness as well as recovery, the ways in which these two americas break down, you see that again and again and again. >> it's also i think the other point here is that it's something that will happen i think often is people on the left we get into this defensive crouch around the role of government and so we defend the states' actions in the abstract, but if you talk to lefty activist who are part of common ground and katrina it was government bureaucracy who was their enemy. and folks on staten island are frustrated and angry and feeling they're not getting enough attention, the target of that anger is the government bureaucracy and you can't fall into the trap i think as a liberal saying, oh, the state in the abstract government has a role to play and not also be very clear-eyed about the failures of specific bureaucratic p
the first, the first republican control of both houses during the clinton administration, we were able to balance the budget for the first time in over 40 years. the poverty level was not as high. kids were taken care of. you're looking at a person who has passed children's legislation to help them. and nobody in utah should suffer and go without. but mitt romney covered last night how important it is that we have a good economy and that we get people back to work. and that we get jobs. that's why he's going to win this presidency. regardless of what happened last night or what the pundits say, mitt was right. and, frankly, that's the only way we're going to pull ourselves out of here. think about it. when this president took over, 32 million people were on food stamps. today 47 million just a year or two later. now, all i can say is that we've got to change it, and i agree with scott, we all need to change it for the benefit of children. >> moderator: a rebuttal, mr. howell? howell: well, i don't think there's a rebuttal because orrin and i know we shouldn't have starving children. my
a rally with president clinton but now he scrapped that plan, heading back to d.c. to monitor the preparations for and the early response to hurricane sandy. in advance of the expected impact along the coast the president has issued emergency fema declarations for massachusetts, new york, d.c., new jersey, all of the states along the coast. this lets fema coordinate disaster relief effort and take some of the pressure off of the state, off of the local emergency officials. it also lets them mobilize equipment, resource as needed. obviously there is financial help there. if it were up to governor romney, we would not have fema at all. >> stephanie: bad. big government. >> during the g.o.p. primaries there is a clip of him talking to cnn's john king about what we should do about financial issues with fema. >> stephanie: yeah, we have that. >> every time you have an and an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go further and
the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional
from the 1990s, which is president clinton, who had a balanced budget. he asked the wealthy to pay more. the rates went up to 39.6. we had eight years of very strong growth. >> including surplus. >> i'm not saying the taxes cause that but we know that having higher taxes on wealthy americans didn't lead to a recession as republicans have argued. that's what's really daunting about the whole discussion about taxes. the fact that we have no real idea what mitt romney will do on taxes as president other than if we take him at his word, it does mean that middle class americans will pay more in taxes. either he is not being honest with us or middle class americans will see a tax increase. that's the choice people have. >> he also seems to be threatening us a little bit. ari, i want you to respond to this. let's listen to mitt romney who seems to be threatening that if president obama is reelected that republicans are going to take us over the fiscal cliff. let's listen to this. >> unless we change course, with he may well be looking at another recession. you know that if the president is ree
, but when i worked there during the clinton administration it was absolutely not apolitical. people make decisions about what it will find, what you will do. i was told that during the bush administration the oig would write reports. that are be completely redlined and turned into a one page memo if it did not fall on certain lines. so i do not think that as possible. >> let me disagree a little bit. maybe not vigilance, but with resources in our world, all these complaints about not covering the good news, different types of news that come from different types of entities can be reapportioned to other needs. the mayor's office, they had at 1.3 of some of the best former writers in town, former journalists. they could have produced a voice of the mayor's office that was interesting to read, that i would have read. that -- is that government propaganda? of course it is. but on the other hand, n look, nfl.com is doing. they ron collins and analysis, interesting conflict-type stories -- run columns and interesting conflict-type stories. resources are going direct. in a world of dwindling re
